Answering a Reader Question #138
How about modeling for websites which sell clothing? Kind of like an online catalogue I guess??? How much do you charge?
Hey, there, Anonymous! Thanks for the question! If you have an agent, then it will be up to them to negotiate the actual rate that you would be paid for online catalog work. However, if you're freelance, then it depends. Most times, companies casting for these types of jobs will state the range they're willing to pay--from the ones I come across, usually it's a flat rate of anywhere between $150-$250 or something like $25/hour. Remember, not all online clothing stores that put out online catalogs are heavy hitter brand names so they typically don't have the same budgets to work with like some of the larger, more well known companies.
If you're freelancing and they ask for your rate, then of course there's some flexibility. It all depends on your look, experience and portfolio of images, too. The final rate is definitely different for each model but for this type of work, I would say anywhere between $25 - $75 per hour is appropriate. But remember, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to setting your rates so use these numbers for reference and adjust it accordingly to your situation and modeling skills.
